authority. with respect to cal fire, we are the third largest fire department in the nation and the largest in california with over 7,000 uniformed employees. we also have the largest aerial fire fighting nreed in the world. so typically when a large disaster type fire occurs, we are usually rendering aid, not asking for aid. so when we get into a situation when we get to that level, what we call mega fires is the new term we're using, we're reach a certain draw down level or certain criteria, we reach out to our military coordinators, hence our agreement with the third nraet and the one map locally in san francisco under ir cal fire prides itself on a statistic that we contain 97 percent of all wild fires in california with 10 acres or less and we do this with an aggressive report of incidents, even with a 911 call of smoepk with land, air and ground attack. once fires become to a large enough scale we call mue tour aid, california lass a great mue tour aid system. i think it's looked at nationally because we have souch excellent cooperation with our cooperating agencies. once it reac
to cal fire and we get called in when they are basically out of assets. we are working for cal fire, they are the incident commanders, we follow their coordination, typically we're the last ones in and the first ones out. we do have an on-going relationship with cal fire, i'm in contact with cal fire all the time. we have good situational awareness what's going on in the state of california. they normally put us in an alert stat us so we're prepared to respond in an attack mode. i don't often work with chief chaney in southern california, about a month ago we had 9 aircraft at our peak working fires throughout northern california if that answers your question. >> any other responses? >> i wanted to touch -- can you hear me now? i wanted to touch on that last topic as far as the command control because what we have here in the marine corps is similar to the navy. we have the installation, the regional installation command and also partners with the operational foresite. we allow the operational foresight, we maintain those but then we coordinate, cooperate, with the operational
are talking about the extension of the cal train i am hope thating we spend more time as a board on this. i have no concerns whatsoever about ecom or the price. i am concerned about the scope of what is in this and what i know from talking to other people in the community is that the various partners that will be necessary to connect cal train to the transbay terminal do not agree about the alignment. the san francisco mayor's office and i am the mayor's appointee to this board does not agree with this alignment. i don't believe that the san francisco county transportation authority does. getting agreement between the various parties in addition to the high speed rail authority and cal train is the task ahead for us. the, i believe, i have a great concern about opening a supplemental and then locking ourselves in and then telling ourselves that we can't reopen it. i know that we have to do a supplemental eir but i don't think that we yet know what should be in it. >> i just add on that that question. because i had a related question. and so i was actually curious because i know that we are
of defense connect on line, the dco chat room. basically cal fire personnel, along with all the individual squadrons, all connected realtime able to communicate and coordinate both from the squadron and also on scene. >> well, thank you. let's go ahead and move into relationships. we had a significant discussion yesterday about relationships and again the highlighted and supervisor chiu's comments this morning. how do we ensure they are enduring past the past couple years. >> as general speese said yesterday, we are here for the long time. on the installation side which we coordinate with cal fire and the navy we have annual exercise and we hit that every springtime prior to the fire season. i think what's also, it's important to remember that although it was stressed, the military members are members of the community as well so let's not forget that as far as active duty. although we're transient in nature, sometimes we're in deployment, many of us are home owners and we live in that community. we are part of that community as well. just like the guard, we have an in
which we coordinate with cal fire and the navy we have annual exercise and we hit that every springtime prior to the fire season. i think what's also, it's important to remember that although it was stressed, the military members are members of the community as well so let's not forget that as far as active duty. although we're transient in nature, sometimes we're in deployment, many of us are home owners and we live in that community. we are part of that community as well. just like the guard, we have an interest in protecting our friends and neighbors. sustainment is, it's important to us and we'll maintain it especially on the region side. we're able to have these long-standing relationships while the operating force side goes forward and supports the on-going efforts, we are able to stay back here and sustain those relationships. >> just to follow on that, the navy squadrons that provide fire fighting capability are a combination of active and reserve components. one benefit of reserve components is more longevity is pilots in the squadrons. you may have people who have been th
to fire and 10 years of lessons learned being applied. first to my left, ray chaney, cal fire incident battle xwrupb chief. to his left, colonel laura yeager, 40th combat aviation brigade. to her left, commander steve everett, to his left lieutenant colonel dana, marine corps installation west. thank you. let me go ahead and start off by talking a little bit and just going back over some of the discussions yesterday that i think are going to play into this discussion. we had vice admiral beeman talk a little bit yesterday about capabilities and vice admiral zunkoff talked about partnerships, unity of effort, unity of command. mayor lee talked about dod efforts, expertise, community efforts and as we go into all those discussions today you will see best practices applied during the 10 years from those fires. i have the pleasure of working for administrator fuget in fema headquarters. fema's role is to coordinate response between state and local governments and his focus, his direction to us really comes down it 3 things. he asks us to always plan for the worst case, the maximum of
on engagement. it was tough to explain that to a political body and the public why cal fire isn't launching everything we have and the marines to fight a fire. we've worked hard to educate them, i think a lot of them get it now but it was a challenge initially. >> thank you. do you want to say anything? >> yeah, i wanted to comment on operatability within the california national guard. they worked really well within the framework that we established with cal fire and then beyond that throughout the national guard and the army, all of our aviators train to the same standards so really we're able to integrate any aircrew from any state, any component, into our program at any time because we're operating you noah cording you know, according to the same standards. back in 2008 we had a very large fire event here in california and we aircraft from 22 states responding to that. there is capability to respond within the national guard alone and we have started developing relationships with our title 10 partners, we do similar academics every year like they do so i think that helps generate in
members stakeholders of the cal train and the high speed rail which you see in this list. and early investment strategy for the peninsula corridor basically has two components, advanced signal system and positive flow control and the [inaudible] including the vehicles. that's a total cost of 1.5 billion dollars. and this brings us to today's allocation request. this is for the cboss which is the acronym for the over lay signal system and type of advanced signal system. there are many types and this is the one cal train has chosen to use, and this system is basically to track train locations and prevent unsafe movements and consist of on board equipment and weigh side equipment. the total budget is $231 million. the system in addition to improving the signals and safety has also the added benefit of shortening travel times and also reducing gate down times so improving crossings for traffic. it has a variety of elements from data link communications and computers with digitized maps on the trains. one of the more important features is the throttle brake interface and take over
and extension and bay shore cal train station and realignment. and i hope to see these critical district 10 transportation projects through the upcoming planning stages before i step away from the ta cac so that's it. >> thank you very much. colleagues any comments or questions? okay. next applicant. >> hi good morning commissioners. i am chris wadlynn and a district 10 resident. by training i'm a scientist and my interest in transportation issues has come since i moved to district 10, and quite recently since the cal train over pass, the cal train bridge replacement project has come to light. i worked very diligently with the staff of ta and other community members to come to a resolution with that project. supervisor cohen has also been quite involved with that. as far as myself i'm a community activists of sorts. i'm the vice chair of the gardens initiative and member of the portal member association and working on beautician and improvement of the corridor. living in silver terrace gives me an opportunity to have feet in many parts of the district and district nine is included an
is important to us and we are ready and we count on the relationship that we have with cal fire. in fact, that's probably the most essential part of this thing for us to be ready to fight future fires. >> colonel. >> thank you very much for allowing us to come here and participate because it is important. we really appreciate very much this opportunity. we're doing well right now but there's khal lefrpgs we can do better on and that's exactly what we're looking forward to do. we're looking forward to build upon and leverage what we're doing here. communications, that was one of the first things. it's different with our active duty forces because you see here, we send our aircraft all around the world. we can't necessarily just invest in some components in the aircraft and call it good because those assets may be gone and deployed but we have work arounds for that. we are looking forward to that as well in addition to the training. lastly is we again kind of relish the opportunity to participate in the operations against an active enemy. at least here, it's fire. we appreciate the fact w
object credible resource for an earthquake. there's a variety of dod resources that cal fire can provide in a statewide environment. i think the biggest thing for me, there's several scenarios that are challenging us, one of which and one of our fears, and it's been in the newspaper so it's not a secret, but one of the things that scares me as well is the united states is not really experienced what i would call a global disaster yet. we have had disasters, i was in katrina on an urban search and rescue team, i've been in pretty much all major engagements as far as wild land fires in california, but if you look at a global disaster perspective where you have a hundred thousand victims like a tsunami or a large scale event, we have yet to experience that in this nation. i think the agreements we have here today and the relationships we develop today are going to be key to mitigate that. the other scenario that we are concerned with is a coordinated aerial incendiary attack by al qaeda. one of the things we've seen already in the european union is suspect of al qaeda starting fires in t
and occasionally use cal train as well. >> thank you. >> okay. we can open this up for public comment. any member of the public would like to comment? all right. we will close public comment. colleagues -- we have actually a motion from commissioner cohen on continuing district 10 cac so we can take that without objection. on the district four we have been asked -- cac we have been asked to continue that seat is still looking for an applicant so we will continue that and without objection. commissioner farrell. okay. >> i'm actually seem pretty impressed with our last applicant, and wondering colleagues -- i know actually we had support from our district nine commissioner and president for glen davis and wondering what anyone's thoughts are about that? >> i actually was going to encourage the applicants to meet with the supervisor that represents their district. i'm not sure you can do that but i think it would help to meet with them and get a sense. this isn't the only committee that we have. although this is the one that relates the best to transit. i am impressed b
as well. >> thank you. >> just a comment that we at cal train are moving forward with the electricitifiation and so we are moving forward and we are going to move forward regardless on what happens on the high speed rail. we are working with them to possibly not do additional track work other than separations other than grade separations which i believe in holely as one of the big things to get down. but that is our procedure. we are moving forward and we will cooperate completely with your staff. and also installing the old coast daylight and i am on the board that and and that is moving forward and we will be getting close to getting that done. so that we will have a direct train service from san francisco and los angeles. >> and i can accommodate the director, we work to make sure that that happens. >> there are any other questions or questions specifically to this item? >> director metcalf. >> in the long run i do not think that it is clear if the fourth and king cal train station will remain a station or if there will be other alignments that we all end up b
, it was a little bit different for us as far as what happened there. like cal fire wants to, just like we all do, is aggressively attack things. but we have the applicable policies and orders that really regulate us a little bit because it's got to meet certain thresholds and sometimes like in this last one, it was a remote fire, very small, but it didn't meet some of the thresholds initially but we postured and as soon as it crossed the line they were ready to attack it aggressively. those are challenges we have to work with as well but we're ready to provide that immediate response when necessary. >> we talked a little bit so far about training exercises but maybe from the navy perspective, the marine perspective, the national guard, what training exercises are you doing right now to integrate with cal fire or other local governments to make sure that we're ready for this fire season? >> well, as far as i expressed earlier, we have the springtime exercise. that was our fifth annual one. we will obviously continue that through. just like we were speaking about yesterday, maturing the proces
. >> in the long run i do not think that it is clear if the fourth and king cal train station will remain a station or if there will be other alignments that we all end up believing would be preferred. i think that we need to be undertaking a process, with all of the partners. that will be necessary to pay for and get this project completed. and try to see if we can come up with an alignment and a design that everybody can agree to. i have concerns about spending money on ir that has a likelihood of having to be redone. i know in the scope of the project, a million dollars may not be that much. but there is... i wonder about the wisdom of proceeding. >> four and this king will be... will stay as a station. however, maybe not all trains will stop there. because, and that whole mission bay area is very important to the cal train right now and as far as the yard, only looking at it as someone who has been in the business all of his life. we will have to have some storage. because you are not going to have storage done on the transbay terminal. >> the trains during the rush hour, especially may have to
, the tedford era is over. cal fired the most successful football coach in the team's history. >> this comes at a coast. >> this is a difficult day. he took the program from the bottom up to the bop 10 but couldn't stop the slide back down. after 11 years, his run in cal is over. he brought the football program back to life in berkeley. bu/rbñ he went three and nine this year. and getting blown out regularly. there was a growing sense that tedford could not do what he did a decade ago that. is make cal great again that. is what the graduation rate around 48% meant change was inevidentible. the contract so no taxpayer money will be involved. he issued a statement giving thanks for kmimt making it possible to have the winningest tenure in cal football history. mike shumann joins us live tonight. i know this is a sad day for people at cal. >> no question. we have had gloomy weather on this day. memorial stadium could not have been renovated without his success. >> i informed jeff tedford we'd be seeking to hire a new lead football coach it was a difficult decision for barbara, jeff has been he
by prop k funds and schools and the light rail stations or upcoming cal train station, so that's pretty much it in a nutshell. i can take any questions. >> okay. thank you. just wondering what do you feel is the greatest input you've had on the committee. >> i would say there's two items that come to mind quickly. one is as the chair was the tree maintenance and the issues that homeowners were having around tree maintenance and the cost to them and the potential liability to them, and i think we've moved that forward and the folks that came before the committee and asking for help with that feel good about what is moved forward through this committee, and then through the full board entirely, and also i would say still the most impactful issue is the private shuttle buses and we had back and forth for a couple of years and even before -- i can't recall right now, but the plan that was put forth and you passed about 18 months ago. is that correct? yeah; right. and that still is an issue and i think it impacts the city significantly and maybe more significantly than we thought even
. >> and it was a great game. >> sal, i know you are looking at some major delays on call train -- cal train? >> yes, wee they will calling that person a pedestrian and cal train has hit that person and there are major delays on the system. now we are getting word it can be stopped completely and they are using a bus bridge to fit around palo alto and again major tee lays because a train hit a pettianment we have more information and we will have more for you until some of that mist. we have had slowed traffic on highway 4 and it is backed up into pittsburgh because of an earlier accident and we had a stalled vehicle out there. highway 4 is not doing well and in fact it is not lighter and in fact it is heavier than it normally is. >>> and in san francisco, mike polanski is reporting but it has been in the north bay and santa rose, they are fitting food gusts and mainly points north, by tonight that rain moves over us and by late tonight tomorrow morning, and out to lake county mendocino county, this has been a pour house system also into oregon and there have been strong wind gusts and also heavy duty ra
